• AFL Rising Stars Game 2008

    Here’s the boxscore.

    On the evening, Phil Hughes faced 15 batters – allowing 2 walks, hitting another batter, one steal, a single, a double, and two homeruns. So, that’s seven of fifteen batters doing something against Hughes that was bad.

    Hughes is not exactly helping himself with his AFL showing to-date.

      No. But, that’s more of a reflection on Peavy than Hughes.

      [...] to think of it, Hughes hasn’t seen an AFL action since he was beat up in the Rising Stars game – on October [...]
